London imagery of the coal holes of Belgravia

Modern Craftsmanship ~ Using psychogeography, my camera and modern craft tools the images are transformed to reveal its beauty. The craft is separating the greys into 20 or more layers.

Up to 1956 and the passing of the Clean Air Act, coal was the main source of heating fuel in London. In the wealthier parts of town, a hatch, a coal hole, was bored into the pavement so that the dirty, dusty, coal could be delivered direct to the coal bunker
under the road.
With over 50 diff erent styles of these cast iron hatches. They are a celebration of Victorian craft smanship and design.
